Okay,

So, you all seem like a good bunch of folks – so I thought I’d share some of my photos of my small (in progress) garage workshop… its a mess at the moment – but I’m putting it together as I get ideas and time to do the work.

Suggestions appreciated.

Hey Buster,

I agree… I loaded another one and took some more pictures – but I can’t get them to load onto the site… I’ll keep trying, though.

By the way – I like your signature.

Posted some more pics now that the connection is better -

@whitebeast88, Thanks, they’re made of Poplar – I enjoy working with it. Easy to work with and has some nice grain variations and is durable.
The “shop” is 1/2 of a 2-car garage – its tight but workable… When the cabinetry is done it’ll have some more “organized” space which will make it more useful… Too much stuff out laying around right now.
Cabinet doors for bottom and upper cabinets are next on the agenda… But I might get distracted with Christmas stuff, too…

Anyone have any tips for making panel doors? I am going to make simple frames from the Poplar that I have and insert a plywood panel in them… How do I make the groove in the frames on the table saw and not run it out to the edge where its got to be filled?

You can run it all the way out and make the frames rail and stile. The groove at the end of the stiles accepts a mortise you make at the end of the rails.

firefighterontheside -

Thanks! I needed that bit of inspiration … Sometimes the details hang me up – so that’ll be the piece I was missing to get this thing back on course.

Thanks for your firefighter service. I am a fire alarm systems consultant and have been in the fire alarm systems industry for over 25 years.

Correction. You make a tenon or tongue on the end of the stiles, not a mortise. I have a love hate relationship with fire alarms. Love them when they work. Hate them at 3 am when they are malfunctioning. I have known a few firefighters who were in the business of firefighting and fire alarms.

Good luck with the doors.
